Nudging the gavel? CA official sends a friendly 'btw'

by Jeremy Hooper

We're pretty sure that following document, which we obtained by a public record request to the CA court, is mostly procedural and will have little bearing on the California Supreme Court's eventual outcome on the Prop 8 matter. However, it is still nice to see that the State Solicitor General is reinforcing the "equal protection" element of the Iowa Supreme Court marriage ruling, an apparent attempt to encourage the CA Supremes to follow suit:

We'll have to wait and see if this Iowa reminder (or anything) tips the court towards fairness. Though we sincerely hope they recycle, both this paper and the fairness that they put forth last May.

Your thoughts

I think the Iowa ruling only reinforces the SCOCA's decision to uphold prop 8. Because now they can point to their own ruling of last year as having influenced the rulings in CT and IA (both rulings referred to CA's re: Marriages case), and therefore feel as if with good conscience that they've advanced the issue. And they have, however, that doesn't negate the fact that upholding 8 causes a whole host of new issues for minorities in the state.
